Ed Lover biography:
Ed Lover net worth: Ed Lover is a rapper, actor, musician, radio personality, and former MTV VJ who has a net worth of $5 million. Ed Lover constructed his net worth as an actor, rapper, musician and radio personality. Besides becoming the faces of rap for thousands of young viewers, the duo also starred together in 1993’s hip hop comedy who is the Man, telling the story of two Harlem barbers who eventually develop into policemen. The next year they went on to release their record Back Up Off Me!, which did not live up to their expectations and was badly received by crowds. By late, he is the host of The Ed Lover Show on SiriusXM’s Old Skool rap station BackSpin.
Born in 12th February 1963 in Queens, ny, Ed Lover began his music career included in a hip hop group called No Face. The group only released one album in their five years of recording. Despite of Ed Lover being a important member of the group, his name wasn’t credited in the album.
Ed Lover left the group for reasons best known to him. He was the co host of MTV’s hip hop program “Yo! MTV Raps Today”. It was on this show that Ed came up with his own dancing routine known as the Ed Lover Dance. This dance was very popular in the 90s.
The album was badly recieved. The previous year he’d starred in the movie “who is the Man”, which was well recieved. Ed went on to be a radio personality on Radio Power.
In 2002 he was featured in VH1 top 100 Greatest One-Hit wonders. He is now the host of the TV program “Hip Hop Hold ‘Em”.
James Roberts (born February 12, 1963, in Hollis, Queens, New York), better known as Ed Lover, is a rapper, actor, musician, radio personality, and former MTV VJ. Currently hosts “The Ed Lover Show” on SiriusXM’s Old Skool rap station BackSpin.
Before reaching fame on MTV, Ed Lover was part of an eccentric and purposefully enigmatic hip hop collective called No Face, mainly with fellow members Kevon Shah and Mark “Mark Sexx” Skeete, who served as the main company. No Face debuted in 1989 on Island Records’ Club music imprint Great Jones using its only known recording for the label, “Hump Music”—an underground sexually explicit parody of The Jungle Brothers’ 1988 hiphouse classic “I’ll House You.” No Face would continue recording for another five years, but it only released one record in 1990, Wake Your Daughter Up on its own No Face label, that has been managed as an imprint of the Rush Associated Labels section of Def Jam Recordings. Though Ed Lover was definitely identifiable throughout parts of the album, his name had not been credited on the album and he wasn’t featured on any album or single covers during this interval—thus depicting Ed Lover the No Face part of the group. Its primary symbol featured two heads with the word “face” composed in graffiti-style’ at the base of the right face, while the official label logo featured three heads together with the word “face” in a more legible font. Ed Lover is featured in the video for “Half,” which often aired on Yo! MTV Raps during his tenure as co host.
